Corporate Slut *

How dare anyone suggest that this is anything but a genuine blog from a rather lonely and pathetic US exile doing some undercover work. He's done it again, another classic! But please stop following me and my fantastic and fabby new friend around, Mac!

* those art-shocker-rockers Selfish Cunt (who else for the CIA's top operative in Ireland) - bye the way, have I ever told the story about how I was at some art show at the Rhythm Factory in Whitechapel (the link is the Selfish Cunt play here now and again) about two years ago when someone said that "Pete Doherty's new band" Babyshambles were playing in the back room. Sneaked in and, well ..... I was so pissed (well, there was free booze all night) that cannot remember anything about it after that. Watched the band's full set - that I do know - but don't remember anything, and I mean anything, about the music. Thank goodness, cos they really are crap. Why am I mentioning this? Oh, that would be because I am a terrible and shameless name dropper. Take last night for instance when I happened to drop into my conversation with Jane how I once interviewed Rio Ferdinand .........

See you there.

Thanks very much for the plug. Much appreciated, although I can't promise to bring the stalking to a complete halt. Your lives are far too fascinating.

Jane - yes, but I'm sure that when I first mentioned Rio you thought we were off to mardi gras in Brazil rather than the Rio from Peckham.

McManus - the last yank to be seen at the Den was Kasey Keller and we liked him. So, see you in the West Upper Stand - that's the area of the ground that's full of middle-aged former thugs wearing puffer jackets! South london's finest, in other words.

Jane, wasn't that fun?

McManus, thanks for your discretion, but your incessant chat about pornography and whisky was getting on everyone's nerves.

Jim, nah, that was only in the very early days when I went to Cold Blow Lane. Yesterday, I was doing a bit of shouting and, I think, Jane enjoyed my reindition of "let 'em come, let 'em come, let 'em come, let 'em all come down to the Den" - but she was looking rather perpexed at the mock south London accent that has to be adopted when singing our song!

Cookie, I may be posh, but I'm also a skinflint - ticket mix-up (which was all sorted out bye the way) for mate resulted in him getting four free tickets for four home games. Methinks they are desperate to get people along!

All, I may post on this later, but the 'Wall were dreadful - more than once we heard on leaving: "that was fahkin rubbish!" - but, still, three points were welcome nevertheless!
